Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, when they are being chased on the unfinished bridge, FDR blows up one of the cars following them and it flips upside down and remains on the road, but when Heinrich attempts to run them over the road is clear, no flipped cars or even signs of an explosion.


Continuity mistake: When Heinrich is attempting to run over Tuck, FDR and Lauren at the unfinished bridge, in the open view from the truck the jeep is not visible.

Continuity mistake: When the stewardess is at FDR's door when the camera is facing her her hair is up, but when then camera goes behind her the hair is down and flowing. (01:07:50 - 01:08:55)


Continuity mistake: Tuck and FDR are in the Collin's office, and when the camera cuts to Collins, Tuck is leaning his face on his hand. When it cuts back, his hand is on his lap.

Continuity mistake: Right at the end of the film, when the 2 characters are arguing about who slept with who in the past, just before Tom Hardy runs at Chris Pine, Chris is standing at the opening without goggles on, then as the camera switches as Tom runs at him, he's suddenly wearing them, with not enough time to have a chance to put them on.


Factual error: At the beginning when Heinrich's brother falls from the building there are two mistakes that can be seen. First: The cars are driving on the wrong side of the road. Hong Kong drives on the left just as they do in England. Second: The license plates on the cars are for Mainland China, not for Hong Kong. China uses blue background with white letters, while Hong Kong uses yellow or white with black letters.


Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film Lauren calls Tuck and asks him to meet her at the restaurant. Tuck says to FDR "got to go, mate" and shuts the screen to his laptop and walks away. The long shot shows the screen to the laptop open.

Continuity mistake: When both cars go off the bridge there's an over head shot of the smoke and Tuck, FDR and Lauren have disappeared - they would've been either side of the bridge, also we can see through the smoke.

Continuity mistake: When Tuck and FDR are fighting in the restaurant, they both go over the balcony and the stunt man on the right is going to miss the table on landing. Cut to ground level and both stunt men land on the table.

Continuity mistake: When the VW beetle lands in the water the roof is up. Cut to the driver and the roof is down.

Continuity mistake: Lauren tells them to shoot out the headlights to deploy the airbag, but in the next shot the headlights are intact again.


Continuity mistake: FDR is 'darted' to send him to sleep and, with the camera at the window end, his head lies straight on the sofa. Next camera angle is from the other end of the apartment and FDR's head is facing the camera. Then the next shot from the window is again showing his head lying back on the sofa. (00:56:00 - 00:58:00)


Revealing mistake: When FDR jumps in the Beetle to help Lauren you can see it's a stunt making the jump - his hair is darker.

Continuity mistake: After his fight with Foster, Tuck gets a large wound on the right side of his head which increases in size during the bridge scene.
